** A deleted scene had a variation on this joke with him performing moody NeilYoung-esque folk-rock, which is dismissed by his peers as "sounding [[{{Grunge}} grungy]]."

* JerkAss: Dewey is selfish and narcissistic; among other things, he cheats on his wife, attempts to marry two women, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking never pays for the drugs]], refuses to take responsibility for raising his many children both legitimate and illegitimate, [[RunningGag never pays for the drugs]], sleeps with his bandmates' wives and girlfriends, [[RuleOfThree never pays for the drugs]], has a homosexual experience with a bandmate that leaves the bandmate confused and hurt, and [[OverlyLongGag he never]] ''[[OverlyLongGag once]]'' [[OverlyLongGag pays for the drugs!]]

''Walk Hard'' stars Creator/JohnCReilly, who spent a year recording 40-plus of the songs that his character supposedly wrote. He proves himself to be a more than capable singer and he approaches the ludicrous situations with the same sincerity he uses in his more serious dramatic turns (''TheAviator'', ''{{Magnolia}}'', ''GangsOfNewYork'', ''Film/WeNeedToTalkAboutKevin'').

* AsYouKnow / CaptainObvious: Any celebrity who appears will loudly announce who they are multiple times. This is done to self-consciously highlight the fact that they (intentionally) put absurdly little effort into imitating the celebrities they're supposed to be.

to:

* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: When Dewey's bandmates call him out on his many, ''many'' instances of JerkAss behavior such as sleeping with their wives, Sam's one complaint is that he never ''once'' paid for the drugs.

Added DiffLines:

* MagnumOpus: Dewey spends much of his musical career and, indeed, much of his life working on his magnum opus "Beautiful Ride," a song that encompasses an entire lifetime of ups and downs and which is so grand in scope that at various points in its creation it requires a veritable army of singers, musicians, and [[UpToEleven barnyard animals]] to perform it. Indeed, it is ''such'' a crowning achievement in Cox's life that, after its first and only live performance, [[ParodiedTrope he drops dead, his life's work complete]].'

* IncrediblyLamePun: Near the end, Dewey finally quits drugs, saying that he'll no longer give into "the temptations." Cue the clean-cut boy band.
